Stephen King: NRA Should 'Clean Up Blood, Brains and Chunks of Intestine' After Next Massacre

By Noel Sheppard | January 26, 2013 | 11:10

"One only wishes Wayne LaPierre and his NRA board of directors could be drafted to some of these [violent] scenes, where they would be required to put on booties and rubber gloves and help clean up the blood, the brains, and the chunks of intestine still containing the poor wads of half-digested food that were some innocent bystander’s last meal."

So wrote horror writer Stephen King in a Kindle essay Friday entitled "Guns."

"[P]lenty of gun advocates cling to their semi-automatics the way Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson clung to the shit that was killing them," King wrote in his 25-page essay.

Not surprisingly, there was a lot of hypocrisy in King's piece noting "to claim that America’s 'culture of violence' is responsible for school shootings is tantamount to cigarette company executives declaring that environmental pollution is the chief cause of cancer."

“It took more than one slim novel to cause [these teenagers] to do what they did," King said

It's a Long Way to Tipperary - Irish folk song, longing home.

[Victrola: It's A Long Way To Tipperary Sung By John McCormack]

It's a long, long way to Tipperary. It's a long way home to the sweetest girl I know.

The British export their terror & horror, but the world ain't buying it. The debt crisis is a "Non- Sufficient Funds" notice. Non-payment.

Irish pray to the saints....'English go home.' Please have them clean up their mess as they leave.

NesBusted is some seriously good comedy. Seriously.

Fortunately, NewBusted ® does not do opera!

You cannot easily take their word at face value. It would be like denominating, "In God We Trust."

No matter. NewsBusted has irreverence for news theatre.
====================================================================
For the record (copy from this forum post), here are some other crazy statements by King:

  • Stephen King Publishes Vulgar Attack on Conservatives: 'Tax Me, for F@%&’s Sake!'
  • Stephen King: Right-Wing 'Hate' of Obama Is Like Anger That Led to JFK's Murder
  • Stephen King on NBC: Obama Like JFK, People 'Hateful' Toward Both
  • Stephen King Bashes Reagan and Republicans For Making His Taxes Too Low
  • Stephen King Mocks 'Patronizing' Rush Limbaugh, 'Crazy' 'Nutcase' Glenn Beck
  • Stephen King Knocks ‘Hollow,’ ‘Dark’ American Dream, Praises ‘Pretty' Rachel Maddow
  • E-mail Instructions: 'Hi, Noel—Stephen King Says to Shut Up and I Agree'
  • Stephen King: If You Can't Read, You'll End Up in the Army or Iraq

Stephen King's irreverent comedy is not my flavor. Yet, I do taste a vague scent of humor.
